Losing What We Had

Show Summary Details

Preview

Midway College's women's basketball team had already played nine games and lost six. Going over the scouting report at practice, Nancy Winstel had told her team that they would have trouble with size and athleticism if they came to play. This was evident when the two teams lined up for the tip. Midway came out strong against the smaller lineup, playing for pride and holding its own until Winstel began slipping her starters back in. From then on they continued to play extremely well, no matter who was on the floor. Wayne State offered a much greater challenge than Midway in terms of height, rebounding, and Division Two skills, but they did meet the challenge in impressive fashion. However, later that year, Northern Kentucky University played against and lost to both Quincy and Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville.
